Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Elgin District Curriculum
The District is committed to educating their students with the rigorous curriculum in the Common Core Curriculum State Standards in Math and Language Arts and state developed frameworks for other core subjects. The district has a top notch Career and Technical Education curriculum that provides students with a challenging series of courses that are designed to prepare them for college and careers after high school. The courses are designed alongside the Elgin Community College so that students can earn college credit.
At the elementary level, teachers use the Balanced Literacy curriculum tools to ensure that writing, reading, and language lessons are intentionally taught each day. As students move through the elementary grades, the time allocated to those three important topics increases to meet the demands of higher level thinking and problem solving using language skills.

Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
SchoolTutoring Academy has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
SchoolTutoring Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades. Test Prep Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades.
SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
SchoolTutoring Academy gave my daughter the confidence she needed to boost her SAT score Thank you!
SchoolTutoring has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was able to improve her test scores after a few months of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank-you! My son is very impressed with his tutor and looks forward to each session. What’s particularly amazing about this is our son has never really looked forward to math or school for that matter!
We are so happy with the results of your tutoring program and academic support. Homework time was such a stressful evening for the entire evening before we brought your tutors into our home. Thank you for all your help!
Our daughter, a first grader, struggled with basic reading and handwriting. When she began with SchoolTutoring she was almost a year behind her class. Within a year of being enrolled, she is reading above her grade level and has the confidence to match.

Chalk Talk: Literacy Development
Studies show that children entering kindergarten arrive with a wide range of language skills. This makes it difficult for teachers to be able to effective teach them all how to read at the same pace. Students who are read to each day will arrive in kindergarten knowing thousands of words and they will be learning alongside children who have vocabularies that are up to 90 per cent smaller because they are not read to on a regular basis. Most kindergarten teachers also report that they regularly have students who do not even know what a book is and how to use one. The best way to prepare your child for success at an early age and beyond is to expose your children to books by taking them to the public library, letting them choose their own books, reading the books (over and over again, if necessary), and letting your children "read" to themselves (they will make up their own words or recite the words from memory).
